SCHUMER: The president slammed the table, asked Speaker Pelosi if she would support his wall and when she said no, he walked out and said "we have nothing to talk about".

Donald Trump
Just left a meeting with Chuck and Nancy, a total waste of time. I asked what is going to happen in 30 days if I quickly open things up, are you going to approve Border Security which includes a Wall or Steel Barrier? Nancy said, NO. I said bye-bye, nothing else works!

Schumer says Trump asked Pelosi if she would accept wall and when she didn’t, Trump walked out of the meeting. Calls it another “temper tantrum”

He's a toddler. It would be funny if this idiot wasn't literally dooming people to die with this petulant baby tantrum.

He and the Republican Party are not going to come out of this with increased popularity. There is no way to get a political "win" at this point for him, I imagine some of his advisers know this, and he's just listening to the wrong people.

What a fucking child.

I’m just dumbfounded.

They had the full govt for 2 years and now when the house changes over it’s a “humanitarian issue” and is the Democrats fault.

Chances of this shutdown becoming the longest in American history are pretty much certain right?
See you in February.

Honestly, as wonderful as Nancy's ether is, this is starting to get scary that the government is going to be shut down for the foreseeable future with no end in sight. I'm glad she's not caving though, but I'm worried the blame is going to shift to her.

Edit: with the AP already posting that both sides bullshit tweet I'm worried that other media are going to start to gently suggest that Democrats are partly at fault.

I don't think he realizes he's not gonna win this one out
His entire career is built on being bailed out by other people after failing, or by ripping people off by breaking deals in non-iterative contracts w/ individual parties.

But politics ISt iterative, it's why he got backlash from Obama->Trump voters when he lied on the campaign trail about the populist eocnomics, then went full Paul Ryan in office. It's why Pelosi's holding firm when 50% of the public blames the shutdown on Trump, 5% on the congressional GOP, and only the GOP base is blaming Dems with their 30-35% floor. People are learning to just hardball him.

How long is this going to last.

I don't see Trump ever caving due to personal Ego.

Can he be impeach for holding everyone hostage?

I'll eat crow and admit I dogged on Pelosi in favor of younger representation; but goddamn is she a bulldog in politics. She hasn't budged an inch.

Hold the line Nancy and Chuck.

It'll last until McConnel gets the gumption to allow a vote on a widely popular bill.

McConnel is just as much to blame for all this, if not moreso since Trump is an idiot man-child so our exceptions of him remain zero.

They are gonna have to start bringing out the line 'we dont negotiate with terrorists for a reason'. Already half way there with the 'hostage' comparisons.
